Family and friends of Shawn Fadden are uniting to raise money to help with his battle against Stage IV Colon cancer.

My husband and I are blessed with many wonderful friends in our lives. Two of those great friends are Shawn and Darlene Fadden. They are amazing people with tremendous courage and love. Shawn and Darlene lost their daughter Jenna (at the young age of 17) to cancer in September of 2009. Shawn was diagnosed with Colon cancer in June of 2010...days after his 40th birthday.

The cancer has progressed to Stage IV. Shawn and Darlene do not ask anyone for help, so we have stepped up and are reaching out to you all to help raise money for Shawn's medical expenses and personal expenses (bills, mortgage, etc.) due to his inability to work at this time. Darlene, is no longer be able to work presently, as she is Shawn's full time care giver. 

NOW they have to look into Clinical Trials out of State, which requires more expenses to travel, etc. (This was told to them Sept 21/12 by Shawn's oncologist)

We hope to be able to relieve a lot of stress from Shawn so that he can concentrate on his recovery. Thank you for your support!

*Note from GiveForward: Darlene is appearing as the beneficiary because she is accepting the contributions from Shawn's fundraiser. The fundraiser is set to close on December 17th.*
